I got introduced to A Fine Frenzy when I heard "What I wouldn't do" on somebody's engagement video and I got so intrigued by the folk melody and 'oh-this-is-exactly-what-happened-to-me' lyrics, that I googled some of the words from the song and so it began...
The "Elements" is one of the most powerful songs I've ever heard! Besides that, I really like "The Beacon", "The World Without" and "Electric twist". And what's interesting- those songs are so different from each other! So, you just never get bored with it.

Listen to the songs (maybe on youtube) and make your own decision about buying this album. But I hope you'll like it as much as I do.

Although I personally like her 2nd album better, this one, too, belongs to the list of my favourite albums. Alison's songs are melodic and poetic and always draw vivid pictures in front of your eyes. My favourites on this album are: "You picked me" (oh, how brilliant the lyrics are on this one! and what a blissful feeling this song gives you), "Ashes and wine", "Last of days".

Note though: since musical tastes differ greatly, I'd recommend you listen to the songs (on youtube or such) and then make your decision about buying any album.

It's just recently that I gradually started accepting other ideas about love- that love is an ACTION that requires certain skill and not merely a "happy state" that you just "fall into". And that's when this book got to me, right on time.
Besides erotic love, this book also provides some thoughts on other forms of love: self-love, love of God, so it is useful in more ways than one. It's written in a logical and somewhat scientific, but not… Read more
